I wasn't so sure about the bouncing POVs, but each section/perspective change is clearly noted, and serves the story well. There's a nice balance of exposition and intrigue throughout. And even though there are several perspectives to get through, each character is shown to have depth and flexibility--even the nastier ones are not without inner conflect. I look forward to reading the next installment!

There was something so fascinating about this story and the cast of characters he put together. It started out with a bang (well, more of a crash) and kept up a very satisfying pace. Kevin didn't skimp on the science without lapsing into physics-class mode. There was even a hint of steampunk in this one which was a really neat twist. I loved the main characters, especially the Esool captain, with his unexpected abilities and the two who ended up being the main characters of the big reveal at the end. (No spoilers!) There was such a compelling vulnerability and mystery around them. The author in me couldn't help but notice--and comment on now--some weaknesses in the writing, but I got caught up enough in the story that I didn't care. And when I came to consider them more in depth once the story was finished, I realized that it's the sort of things that most readers won't notice or care about if set within a good story, thus I'm not going to enumerate them here. So there's me being petty, I suppose, for even bringing it up. But I'd rather be honest and mention it than not. Thoroughly readable, enjoyable, and super-cool book. I recommend it highly.
